What are the best SD cards to use in a Raspberry Pi? SD cards have a limited life, and the more you read and write to them, the shorter their lifespan.

What are the best SD cards to use in a Raspberry Pi?

In a Raspberry Pi this makes things a little tricky, the SD card gets a much tougher workout than it normally would in something like a digital camera. Up until now, I have always just picked up a SD card that was sold bundled with a Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately these SD cards are often low quality and didn’t last very long, with some failing in as little as a month. So now I get SD cards separately, and only ones that feature wear levelling.

The cheap SD cards don’t have any wear levelling, and the Raspberry Pi gets into situations where certain areas on the SD card gets written to over and over again until it wears out and fails. The more expensive cards with wear levelling won’t just keep pummelling the same spot on the disk over and over again. I also get SD cards that have way more space than I need, at least 8GB. SD Memory Cards. Swissbit's Industrial SecureDigital (SD) card series are specifically designed, manufactured and tested to withstand extreme environmental conditions.

SD Memory Cards

The use of SLC Flash in the S-200 / 220 series combined with an optimized Flash controller provide a number of enhanced product features such as built-in error correction, sophisticated Wear Leveling & Bad Block Managementalgorithms, power fail protection and power saving modes. A high reliability housing with special connector support is used for providing resistance against bending and torque. Industrial Grade SD Memory Card.

Custom Labeling, Custom ID and Preloaded Content are available based on customer requirements (see Custom Features). Industrial Grade Rugged Solid-State Secure Digital (SD) Cards for Industrial Applications. Why do you need industrial-grade SLC memory cards instead of their cheaper consumer-grade counterparts?

Industrial Grade Rugged Solid-State Secure Digital (SD) Cards for Industrial Applications

Industrial-grade cards are made to endure severe operating conditions such as high impact, continuous vibration, low and/or high operating temperature. These cards are durable and can last intensive reads/writes. Certain cards are even made to be moisture-resistant. Consumer-grade memory cards are not as durable. For most of the industrial applications which normally require intensive I/O cycles, the consumer-grade cards tend to fail prematurely.
